Well the thing I’d most like to share right now is just a simple click away at the Scattermish blog, where I believe I may have directed you once or twice before. DJ Saca La Mois (of the Cumbia Cosmonauts and many fine Melbournian tings) has truly outdone himself with his latest effort, Americas Vol 2. It aint all cumbia, but there’s a rigorously healthy preponderance of that fine stuff, alongside more esoteric fare, all culled from the very finest South America has to offer. It’s a free download, decent quality and all that… what are you waiting for?? Get to it. In case you can’t be arsed moving your mouse up a few rows of text, here’s that link again DO..IT!

Also more than worthy of a flick of your music seeking wrist, and sure to cause a dip in your hip and a nodding noggin are a slew of fresh, fruity and free audio finery from the gino-generous peoples at the Cabeza! netlabel. Their latest includes mash-ups from soundcloud recidivist Cherman, uptempto tackle from Black Diamond and a real pearler from Los Reyes De La Milanga. The latter is superior blendy hoo-ha, I can say that with confidence because I reject a veritable trailerload of obvious hiphop/reggae/elsewhere vox over ho-hum beats every week, and I’ve been running this (especially the ‘Tocarte Tio Remix’ and ‘Basshead’ cut) ragged for a couple of weeks now. ‘Paper Planes’ is a tune that never sat easy with me, but given the LRdlM treatment with the Puerto Rican don of all dons Tego Calderon sat pon top, …. well I’m a believer. It’s free and have a graze round Cabeza!s pastures if you haven’t before because they have some monstrously good cumbia and cousins (musically speaking), and they also have a few digital ‘singles’ you can buy, so be a sport and support.

Get thee to Cabeza! now and don’t spare the bandwidth ( the Sandro Dalepedro, Nixtamal, Mykol Orthodox, Super Guachin, Sonidero Cordobestia, Fantasma and Zurita releases are my picks of the litter btw).

By way of a tune to post for the week it feels like a minute or two since there’s been any bashmenteering round these parts so here’s a tip from Tifa on the Mento Rhythm that you can’t go wrong with. ‘Nah Stop Shine’ is positively motivational and all things considered that can’t be bad news given JA’s perilous ongoing scenario. Tifa (along with her TNT comrades Timberlee and Natalie Storm …..) has been justifiably picking up props for quite some time, proving to be a bit of a shining light in dancehall’s murky corners. The rhythm’s got a lovely ‘Joyride’-ish bounce so what more needs to be said. Enjoy….
